The competition attracted an entry of 40 players, these being split into a top and bottom halves for the draw, the resulting pairs then played in two round robin boxes.

The finalists from Box A were Caroline Higgins and Luke Morgan playing off scratch and the finalists from Box B were Christy Langford and Tom Higgins. The final between these two pairs started with Caroline and Luke increasing their handicap lead, but Christy and Tom started their fight back and finally won 21-17.
